We had a fun dinner tonight, too!  A recipe for maple BBQ turkey sloppy joe’s caught my eye in the newest edition of Rachael Ray magazine and as I was watching the show yesterday she actually made it.  That sealed the deal for me! IMG_5271 IMG_5272
This is one of her “lazy” 30 minute meals.  I actually think this came together in 20 minutes!  I let it simmer on the stove longer than the recipe said or we’d have been eating at 4:45.  LOL!  I served the joe’s on WW ciabatta buns which I toasted in the oven with some Swiss cheese:IMG_5275 IMG_5274 
And because I always like to have veggie’s on my plate I steamed some broccoli as a side.IMG_5276
A tasty, quick, easy Friday night meal!  Enjoy the weekend, folks!!
Bye for now!!


  1. Haha do you feel left out not liking eggplant?! You know you want to!

    Happy Friday, Krista. Have a great weekend. It was nice to see your hubby guest posting here. I don't have any suggestions since I actually have very low blood pressure.

  2. I love the glimpse into your life-thanks for sharing!

  3. I love this survey! So much fun! Josh doesn't like eggplant either! I find it so funny because I don't think it has a really strong taste/flavor. YUMMY dinner. RR has fabulous ideas. Enjoy your weekend

  4. Love that survey it was so much fun to get to know more about you. That sandwich definitely looks yummy.


  5. I didn't know your sister was my age! Crazy!

    and right there with you on people who drive slow. drives me crazy!

  6. I saw that same recipe in Rachael's magazine and thought it sounded delicious!

  7. Loved your ABC's! It's fun to get to know you a bit better!

    Hubby has been mentioning Sloppy Joes for weeks now. I think I'll have to make some soon. The recipe sounds great!

    Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

  8. Such a fun post, Krista! I enjoyed reading your answers and getting to know more about you...and I am with you on vacuuming! ;)

  9. I love these "get to know me" posts. Not an eggplant fan? I think it's an acquired taste. The texture can be somewhat disgusting, in my opinion. I think the preparation and spices are key! Roasting is my favorite way to eat it.

    Happy early birthday to you!

    I just read your post below (well, saw the initial question from your hubby), and weight loss is the best way to lower BP. Your hubby is thin though, so perhaps try fish oil! Talk to doctor first though. Also, there is some research about CoQ10 and its ability to lower BP.

  10. such a fun post!

    love your info and facts...

    and those sloppy joes look wonderful!

  11. that is an easy recipe!! leftovers will be perfect to take to work too. nom nom nom

  12. I am LOVING your ABC's ! Glad you did one!!! Its fun!!

    No thongs?!! lol! Kidding! I dont know how I wear them, but I do!

    Yes I am sooooooooooo tired! I need the WHOLE weekend to catch up on sleep : P

  13. we're both 5'7" and love to make muffins haha :) and it looks like someone's birthday is coming up in a few weeks time!!! <3 <3


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
